Professor lecturing at classroom


Go on a Literary Journey and let it take you to the Career of your Dreams!

If you can read actively, write responsively, and think critically, you will be prepared for any job under the sun.

That's exactly what English majors learn at St. Francis College and our graduates have gone on to programs at Cornell University, New York University School of Dentistry, University of Iowa Creative Writing Program, and University of Notre Dame.

Find yourself. Find your voice. Find your future.
Be an English Major at St. Francis College.

English majors learn everything from classical texts to contemporary and popular culture. The experiences go well beyond the classroom. Through the Walt Whitman Writers Series, the $50,000 Literary Prize, and a strong collaboration with independent bookseller BookCourt, St. Francis College brings top authors to campus every semester including:

  • Junot Díaz
  • Stephen King
  • Joyce Carol Oates
  • Marlon James
  • Maud Casey

So if you want to be anything from a writer or politician to a policy analyst or brand manager, becoming an English major is a crucial first step.
